"Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.
—Proverbs 15:16 (NIV)
- Repent for any greed or wrong attitudes concerning money.
- Pray for an increased spirit of generosity in the church.
- Ask the Lord to pour out godly fear of the Lord throughout our land.
Father, I thank you for the way You have poured out abundance upon our nation. Forgive us for the ways we have often hoarded or squandered that wealth. Help us to see from heaven's perspective how wealth is to be viewed and used. Pour out the fear of the Lord that causes us to see all that we have as coming from You. Help us as a nation not to put our trust in our finances but in You. Give us an even greater sprit of generosity.
